CINCINNATI -- Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who wasn't in Thursday's lineup due to right shoulder soreness, received a cortisone injection in his shoulder before the game.

Manager Don Mattingly said before Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Reds that Ramirez, who was a late scratch for Wednesday's game but pinch-hit in the seventh, felt better Thursday.

"It's kind of encouraging," Mattingly said. "Obviously, he's not in the lineup, but it's encouraging that this is going to be a day or two days. The fact that he walked in this morning feeling better, with a little bit more movement, it was encouraging."
